Welcome to Syros right at the heart of Cyclades. We are equally excited and looking forward to spending an unforgeable sailing week together around the hidden gems of the Greek islands.
Arriving at the beautiful Finikas Marina where our trip starts, you can drop your luggage at the boat and enjoy a splash in the nearby crystal clear water or a tasteful lunch right in front of the marina, awaiting the check-in time, which is at 13:30 at the all-day restaurant Baobab right in front of the marina . Everyone is on board and after a short briefing we sail out to Paros island. Our first overnight takes place in the beautiful bay of Naousa on an anchorage or docked at the port. We enjoy the local cuisine for our dinner at the little local port village.
Taking advantage of the morning wind we sail after breakfast to Iraklia island. A population of approximately 80 people during the winter, kept this little paradise off the beaten tack of mainstream tourism. Enjoy a really picturesque place. Relaxing on the beach, having drinks with view to the boat, walking at the top of the hill for the sunset. The team will gather for an unforgettable dinner in a family tavern, experiencing the Greek hospitality and approachability.
Koufonisi is our next destination, just a few nautical miles away for our morning relaxing sail. Grab your towel and explore the simply stunning island. Walking north on the coastline you experience the one of a kind magic beaches, you take a dip in natural lagoon made of rocks, try the local snacks at Pori beach at the very north of the island. Enjoy this well-deserved blessed piece of land.
A morning swim or walk on the beautiful coastline of Koufonisi is great
way to start your day. Today we will be sailing to the third special member
of the Small Cyclades named Schinousa. The beauty of this place cannot be
described with words. The protected waters of this passage offers a perfect
sailing arena, a great place to understand why people for in love with sailing.
At your arrival in the small picturesque port of Schinousa, you can choose from swimming in the the nearby beach, explore the village at the top of the hill or enjoy the sun and the tranquil atmosphere on the boat. A seafront dinner for all the group at the end of the day.
Early start to Naxos, the largest -in surface- island of the Cyclades. An endless sandy beach on the west side of the island and the sea front picturesque main village. No doubt you could literally spend days and days to explore. Take a glimpse to the Greek history walking up the white washed alleys, experience history, art, different tastes of local goodies, discover inspired gifts for your beloved ones back home. Rent bike and reach the nearby beaches, let your skipper organise windsurfing lessons for you or a half day road trip to the inland villages. After a whole day exploring we gather all for our dinner, sharing the fun, the thoughts and the highlights.
Off we go towards Syros. Enjoy an interim swim stop on the route. A few hours later, sailing for lunch to Ermoupoli the capital of Cyclades your skipper drops you so that you take full advantage of the day and sails the boat to Finikas Marina, where you will rejoin late in the evening for dinner.
Ermoupoli with its 19th-century architecture, is always full of life. Explore the pedestrianized streets and some of the finest tastes in Cyclades. You can optionally visit Ano Hora, the old town on the top of the hill. The end of the day will find you all back to Finikas for your last dinner in front of the water.
